Con's called it right
Big difference there LAJ, you're hoping I'm right, I'm praying I'm completely wrong.

On the news they claim the Atlantic city casinos will lose 5 million per day.
Hope not the workers there,
But Donald Trump and his so called support of the Republican party, hope he loses billions after his last mentally unstable october Prozac surprise.
He made all republicans look bad, hope ones can see through this and know this guy is a wacko and does not represent all republicans.
All he did with this is help the Democrats, the video looks like a drug addict did this.
For a man that is this rich and claims to be powerful he looked like a fool and for someone that did not know better would probably vote for Obama after seeing this.

Andy Warhol was right

I don't think so Earl. Those who disliked Republicans before will be unswayed, and those on the fence probably see him for what he is anyway, as you suggested.

The thing about Trump, his watch has a 15 minute hand. Every time it runs down, he winds it back up again. He's the kind of guy who wants four 15 minutes of fame an hour.

Basically, he's a showoff. Always has been, always will be, and he's certainly not a representative slice of the GOP.

Anyone who thinks so is not a Republican, although those very same people will likely point to him and say "they are all like that."

...someone that did not know better would probably vote for Obama after seeing this.
I don't really believe that there are many left who haven't decided by now.

I am not sure how Trumps casinos can claim 5 million USD a day loss due to sandy.
Was there not so long ago, casino was almost empty and on a weekend to boot.
Service was piss poor, playing the slots had to chase down the girl for drinks.
Seen one at the tables having to do the same.
Really bad service compared to Vegas .

Just who takes Trump seriously?

If you do....it is you that has the real problem!

He is a huckster, egotist, and adept at making money.

When I heard of his latest offering of a "surprise" about Obama....my immediate comment was "Put Up or Shut Up!". Meaning if he had anything he would have run it out without any build up or promoting it.

As usual with Trump I was right....he is nothing but a Bag of Wind!

In that regard he more closely fits the mold of being a Progressive Democrat!



Newspapers Endorsing Romney After Endorsing Obama in 2008.
Here is a collection of all papers who have switched their support:


Des Moines Register: “Mitt Romney Offers A Fresh Economic Vision.
The Daily Herald (Illinois): “[W]e Endorse Romney Because He, Unlike Obama, Understands That Jobs Are A Creation Of Business, Not Of Government.”.
Florida Today: “Romney Has A Clearer Vision For A Modern Economy…”.
Pensacola News Journal: “We Believe [Mitt Romney] Has The Experience And Temperament To Start The Repairs.”.
Naples Daily News: “[W]e Believe It Will Take Another Administration Change,
Quad City Times: “[W]e Endorse A Successful Leader Focused On Economic Recovery And Growth And Deficit Reduction.”.
Los Angeles Daily News: “Romney Has Proven His Leadership Qualities…”.
Fort Worth Star-Telegram: “Romney Has Laid Out A Consistent Theme … That Theme Is A Winner.”.
Reno Gazette-Journal: “We Find Ourselves In Need Of Change Yet Again. Romney Must Be The Leader To Get Things Moving.”.
Orlando Sentinel: “He Understands That Reviving The Economy And Repairing The Government’s Balance Sheet Are Imperative.”.
New York Observer: “A Strong Leader ….
South Florida Sun-Sentinel: “We Need A Leader Who Will Chart A Clear Course, Sweat The Details And Get The Job Done Right.

Now that Hurricane Precious has pansied out, maybe some news of the blood on Clinton/ Obama, who prevented a defense of the compound, and allowed the vermin to assassinate our people. Nay, encouraged it.

well lets see if the 'blood on the hands' issue is diverted by other news..

hmm.. like, say endless Press Releases on the damage and what a good job the Obamadimistration is doing or perhaps the Messiah making a tour of the disaster zone (the Eastern Seaboard one, not the Benghazi one.. obviously ! ).

Ahhh looks like the Obama team is on it...

Obama Declares 'Major Disasters' in New York, New Jersey - WSJ.com

major disaster declared.. the benghazi bullshit is gonna have to wait..


NB: i loved this:
Mr. Obama, in a televised statement from the White House Monday before Hurricane Sandy made landfall, urged residents to listen to local officials' advice about how to respond to the storm.
brilliant.. Messiah.. messiah !

I don't think that the MSNBC, CNN and all other "fact checkers" are finished counting the raindrops from Sandy. A few are still looking for their anemometers that fell in the water. It may take at least a week before they are ready to "attack" the Benghazi problem.

I have to wonder.... I have a sense that the American people may not be Obamboozled this time around.

His latest meme: "My job is to make sure that...." "We will be making sure" "I will make sure..." "Our job is making sure..."

Four years on, will people notice that he is just now explaining that he found out what his jobs are?

Some heavy hitter is going to have to resign to give Benghazi the legs it deserves. Probably, hopefully, from the 'Company'.......

How do you spell clueless?




When President Barack Obama urged Americans under siege from Hurricane Sandy to stay inside and keep watch on ready.gov for the latest, he left out something pretty important — where to turn if the electricity goes out.

One way to counter the rot is to support those who stood up. Ty Woods should be in our childrens' history books. He defied orders to stand down and let Americans meet their fate. Instead, he rushed into the fire, saved lives, and died in the most honorable way. God bless him!

Here is a way to help his family, who will receive no benefits from our government.

I think Obama's rationale turned on the Hercy shooter.

If he sends in the big gun, he loses utterly the narrative of "Arab Spring", and risks being pressured into Syria.

Woods painting the mortar guys means he knew the Herc was close, and bet that it would obliterate the position. Bad bet, Obama got scared. Even Carter tried.

Obama is as a helpless and precocious child.

We desperately need a leader, not a poseur.....

How do You Spell Clueless?

Dushan,

The white Romney/Ryan yard signs were very stealthy this morning, blending in with the coating of falling wet snow...

Thought you might like this as well:
Obama was updated throughout the night as Sandy came ashore and moved inland. He spoke with New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo and New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie and issued major disaster declarations for both states.

Christie, a Republican who has been campaigning for Romney across the country, praised Obama's leadership.

"Cooperation from the president of the United States has been outstanding," Christie told "CBS This Morning." "He deserves great credit."

That's his job (as He apparently found out, of late) so no special marks for doing it. NY and NJ are not in play so doing this is not going to change anything. What else can Christie say but be gracious?

No news here, move along.

Nice try TurbineD. Any sign of polyps?

Here's another example of splendid leadership from your beloved Barry.



As Hurricane Sandy rocks the east coast, the Obama campaign soldiers on via email. Tasteless email. With millions out of power, the Obama campaign sent an email this evening with the following text:

GOT A PHONE? GET HIS BACK. CALL.BARACKOBAMA.COM
Obama Email During Hurricane: 'Got a Phone? Get His Back'

What a joke.

Turbine D

I see that TurbineD has taken on the same strategy as The Sultan. Posting crap and then running off.

Just like he was with Benghazi?

Did you all catch the comments by Obama and others in his administration saying "We" must get to the bottom of things...."We" must investigate..... "We" need to know.......!

If I wuz Prez....and four Americans got killed under the circumstances they did....a Terrorist Attack that took 7-9 hours to run its course....and no direct assistance was rendered.....I would be hunting for Heads to lop off and roll down the hallways of the White House, Pentagon, State Department, and Langley.....it would look like a bowling alley before I got through.

Unless....I knew the truth already.....and I was the culprit!

Using Obama's past conduct as a guide....it must be someone else's fault as it just cannot possibly be his.
